I recently started looking through Dojo because another blog writer seemed to highly recommend it while saying there’s no real need to use jQuery. Dojo seemed quite powerful, probably having DOM manipulation on par with jQuery, but only if you required the correct extra modules. Also the syntax for Dojo is far more verbose. Still it seemed like Dojo had something that jQuery didn’t, so I sought to find what jQuery was lacking. It turns out that the only thing that Dojo (excluding Dijit and it’s other separate libraries) had that jQuery didn’t was a publish/subscribe module.
